Langtang Valley Trek - 10 Days
Sep 2023 • Couples
We hiked the Langtang Valley with this company and I cannot speak more highly regarding our experience. Rana organised the best of everything to make our trip memorable. The Porter and Guide were both wonderful, friendly and helpful people. The scenery was spectacular and we didn't have to worry about anything.
Rana (who is the owner of the Company) also helped us to organise a second trek which we wanted to do on our own and he was more than happy to help us for no reason other than being helpful. We we're so impressed by this as he had nothing to gain except being nice! Rana you are the best :-) Many many thanks from 2 very happy travellers
Kathmandu Nagarkot Weekend Tour - 4 Days
Nepal was the first stop on my travel throughout Asia and I couldnt have received a better welcome. Rana, Arjun and Chandra welcomed me warmheartedly and made sure that I can see, experience and enjoy from Nepal what was possible in such a short time.They were fully reliable and caring all the time, the tour went ahead as expected and I can fully recommend their service. I hope to see them again.
Annapurna Base Camp Trek - 14 Days
Oct 2023 • Couples
My partner and I did the Annapurna Base camp trekking and it was a fantastic experience!! From the start, Rana provided all the information needed to book and prepare for the tour, we booked from Australia and communication was always timely and complete. Then in Kathmandu, Rana picked us up from the airport and provided more details on our tour ( itinerary, what to expect, what to bring to the trekking, etc). Our guide Durga was fantastic too!! Great communication skills, he explained every detail on what to expect each day, where to eat, where to sleep, very patient as we are not fast trekkers, he even taught us some nepali words that were very useful and shared lots about Nepali culture! Also, our porter Malpa was awesome!! Always smiling, grest energy and enthusiasm!!… Durga and Malpa are a great team together and everything went super smooth for us. This has been the best holidays of our lives! Great memories from the great Himalayan mountains!! 🏔️🏔️ Thank you Rana, Durga and Malpa for showing us your beautiful country! Dhanyabād 🙏🙏
Combine Adventure Tour 10 day
Great experience Everyone friendly and helpful. The roads however in Nepal are like a dirt track not for the feint hearted! Food great.
Annapurna Base Camp Trek -14 Days
I discovered on this trek that enjoyment of the journey is largely tied to the guide leading the climb. Whereas on the previous trek, with the exception of a couple of dark rainy climbs mentioned in a previous review, my guide was frequently far out in front of me and would wait at a place where ther might be confusion as to which path to take, my guide on the Annapurna Trail Rudra Dhoj Waiba was with me every step of my slow journey. He did not act perturbed by my turtle rather than hare pace. He would grab me by the arm whenever I woukd begin to slip. And pick me up when I fell, including a four foot drop from a narrow path after the sun had set. Fotlrtunately, I fell into a bed of high grasses...no injury. He would encourage me, saying "Good Job". He said he was there to make my trek as enjoyable as possible. I had searched the internet and travel agencies here in Kathmandu for Annapurna Adventures. I found none that can compare to the value and personal attention you get from Himamayan
Cultural Heritage and Nature Experiences Tour - 8 Days
The tour was very good. Tour company owner and our primary contact Rana and our driver Dinesh were very good to deal with. Rana picked us up from the airport and sat us down to explain what to expect for the next 7 days on our tour. We went in August, which happens to be the rainy season, and thus was not a busy season, so it eneded up being a private tour. We had the same driver throughout the tour, but our guides changed at each destination. And they were all very good to deal with. Knowing the standard of accommodations isn't what we were used to, we paid a little bit extra to upgrade to 4 star hotels, and it was definitely worth it. I strongly recommend doing that. Just the upgraded views make it worth it. The one major complaint I have about Nepal is thier roads. It took us 10hrs to drive 250 kilometres. I wouldn't even call it a road, it's just a series of potholes that you need to drive over very slowly. Our driver Dinesh did an excellent job of navigating them, but it did seem like we were spending a large chuck of every other day just driving. The distance we covered isn't large, but because the roads are atrocious, what should have taken 3-4hrs, routinely took more than twice that long. But we had a good time in Nepal despite the drives, and I would definitely recommend Ranas company any day if you choose to go to Nepal. He is very attentive to his customers needs, that's for sure.
Cultural Heritage and Nature Experiences Tour - 8 Days
Very structured and regimental if you're into that. But also a decent amount of free time offered. Personally my favorite bit was Chitwan - definitely worth it!
Everest Base Camp & Kala Patthar Trek-14 Days
This two-week Mount Everest Bascamp, roundtrip from a Lukla Airport, over its 100+ miles long and there mile elevation, gave me a great sense of accomplishment. My personal guide Mann was very patient with this senior hikers slow pace. His assistance on the two days we were climbing in the rain and dark until 9:30 PM was a Godscend. He held on to me as we trod in the pouring rain over steep, rocky terrain lit by the flashlight on his cellphone. The guesthouses and meals in those facilities provided a comfortable, clean respite between the segments of the trek.
